    ABSTRACT: DNA condensation induced by a pair of heptameric La(III) helical enantiomers M-[La7(S-L)6(CO3)(NO3)6(OCH3)(CH3OH)7]·2CH3OH·5H2O and P-[La7(R-L)6(CO3)(NO3)6(OCH3)(CH3OH)5(H2O)2]·2CH3OH·4H2O (M-La and P-La, L=2-(2-hydroxybenzylamino)-3-carbamoylpropanoic acid) has been investigated by UV/vis spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, CD spectroscopy, EMSA, RALS, DLS, and SEM. The enantiomers M-La and P-La could induce CT-DNA condensation at a low concentration as observed in UV/vis spectroscopy. DNA condensates possessed globular nanoparticles with nearly homogeneous sizes in solid state determined by SEM (ca. 250nm for M-La and ca. 200nm for P-La). The enantiomers bound to DNA through electrostatic attraction and hydrogen bond interactions in a major groove, and rapidly condensed free DNA into its compact state. DNA decompaction has been acquired by using EDTA as disassembly agent, and analyzed by UV/vis spectroscopy, CD spectroscopy and EMSA. Moreover, the enantiomers M-La and P-La displayed discernible discrimination in DNA interaction and DNA condensation, as well as DNA decondensation. Our study suggested that lanthanum(III) enantiomers M-La and P-La were efficient DNA packaging agents with potential applications in gene delivery.

    ABSTRACT: Three dinuclear nickel triple-stranded supramolecular cylinders [Ni2(L1)3][ClO4]4 (1), [Ni2(L2)3][ClO4]4 (2) and [Ni2(L3)3][ClO4]4 (3) with bis(pyridylimine) Schiff base containing triphenyl groups in the spacers as ligands were synthesized and characterized. The human telomeric G-quadruplexes binding properties of cylinders 1-3 were evaluated by means of UV-Vis spectroscopy, circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) melting assay. UV-Vis studies revealed that the supramolecular cylinders 1-3 could bind to G-quadruplex DNA with high binding constants (Kb values ranging from 0.11-2.2×10(6)M(-1)). FRET melting studies indicated that the cylinders 1-3 had much stronger stabilizing effect on G-quadruplex DNA (ΔTm up to 24.5°C) than the traditional cylinder Ni2L3(4+) just containing diphenylmethane spacers (ΔTm=10.6°C). Meanwhile, cylinders 1-3 were found to have a modest degree of selectivity for the quadruplex DNA versus duplex DNA in competition FRET assays. Moreover, CD spectroscopy revealed that complex 1 could induce G-quadruplex formation in the absence of metal ions solution and convert antiparallel G-quadruplex into hybrid structure in Na(+) solution. These results provided a new insight into the development of supramolecular cylinders as potential anticancer drugs targeting G-quadruplex DNA.

    ABSTRACT: A new three-dimensional heterometallic MnIICuII azide-bridged coordination polymer, [Mn2Cu(N3)6(en)2]n (1), was synthesized by assembling MnII, CuII, azide, and ethylenediamine in solution condition. The 3D structure of 1 can be described as end-on (EO) azide-bridged Mn2Cu trinuclear units linked by end-to-end (EE) azide bridges. Magnetic analysis of 1 indicates that the EO- and EE-azide bridges mediate the ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic exchange interactions, respectively, with the antiferromagnetic coupling dominating the magnetic properties.

    ABSTRACT: In the centrosymmetric trinuclear cation of the title compound, [Co₃(C₄H(8)N₄)₆(H₂O)₆](C₁₀H₆O₆S₂)Cl₄, the three Co(II) atoms are bridged by six triazole mol-ecules via the N atoms in the 1,2-positions. The central Co(II) atom, lying on an inversion center, is coordinated by six triazole N atoms while the terminal Co(II) atoms are coordinated by three triazole N atoms and three water O atoms in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The naphthalene-disulfonate anion is also centrosymmetric. The four chloride counter anions are half-occupied; the H atoms of the amino groups show an occupancy of 2/3. O-H⋯Cl, O-H⋯O and N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the complex cations and the chloride and naphthalene-1,5-disulfonate anions.

    ABSTRACT: A fascinating polythreaded coordination network formed by 1D crankshaft shaped chains threading into a 2D undulated sheet in a one-over/one-under interweaving fashion was reported, in which the 2D layer exhibits an unusual polyknotted entanglement containing triple-stranded molecular braids.
